Found; Vol.1

Since we made the move to Thunder Bay with just a truck and a 6×12 U-Haul trailer, you can imagine that we didn’t have much in the way of furniture. With our old apartment being tiny and full of built in closets and cupboards, we had no room or need for any extra storage. So we really just had our couch and a few chairs to bring along. Other than that, we needed to start from scratch. And it wasn’t just furniture, also decor. While we have quite a bit... Read The Rest →

Progress Report; December

Hi friends! It’s been a while, so I thought I’d check in with you. You might be wondering where we’re at reno-wise, and honestly, it’s been put on hold for a couple months. Which is why there has been a serious lack of blog posts. Dan and I have both been hunkering down, focussing on school and work, respectively, and decided to come back to the kitchen in December when Dan’s semester is done. That way we can work on it together and make some real progress. I’ve been working... Read The Rest →


[outfit details] . fuzzy sweater// [thrifted] . embroidered top//vintage [thrifted] . jeans//Levi’s [Girl on the Wing] . boots//vintage [The Edit] Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! I wasn’t sure what our first official holiday away from family would be like, but it turned out more than ok (not to say that we didn’t miss everyone of course). I worked Saturday afternoon, but we finally took a minute to check out the Thunder Bay Country Market in the morning. There was a guy making poffertjes (super delish Dutch mini... Read The Rest →

one thing at a time

[outfit details]  jumpsuit//vintage [thrifted]  clogs//vintage [thrifted]  necklaces//vintage [The Edit] These photos are from a few weeks ago, when the kitchen still had walls. I do believe we took them after we had been out for the morning and then as soon as we were done, I changed into work clothes and tore the rest of the walls down. It’s kind of cool to see how far we’ve come already, even in a few weeks. Because, my goodness, it’s easy to get caught up in/overwhelmed by all the things that still... Read The Rest →

Bernard Kitchen: Inspiration+Progress

[image via Oracle Fox] NOT OUR KITCHEN. Just a little inspiration. Well, I haven’t been around here for a bit, but you better believe I’ve been busy. I flew home 2 weeks ago, packed up the rest of our belongings in truck and trailer and my brother Travis and I drove it up to Thunder Bay. Did it in a day again, although this time around, we had a solid 4 hours of sleep (unlike the 2 hours Dan and I had when we did it the first time. Flight delays,... Read The Rest →

A Home in Thunder Bay

Welcome to the House on Bernard! We’re in it, we’ve been demo-ing like crazy (have a new kitchen coming next week) and brainstorming lots of ideas for the rest of the place. It’s hard not to get ahead of myself, to not be picking out finishes before I’ve ripped out all the lath & plaster (Seriously though. So much lath & plaster!!). That’s one thing that I’m trying to learn, that patience at the beginning, though difficult, is the best way to have spaces you will love still in a... Read The Rest →

Our Stinson Basement Apartment

Ok! We’ve got a house, we’ve got internet (only took a week. Which was actually really hard. Haha. What have we become?) I’ve got a bunch of posts lined up about the new house. But first things first! Before I packed everything up in Hamilton, I took photos of our apartment there. So let me show you where we lived before we moved. For those of you who don’t know, when Dan went back to school 3 years ago we had the whole problem of still needing to pay our... Read The Rest →

Heading North

Hey! Hi! Hello! I’ve just come back from 5 days up in Thunder Bay with Dan. We explored, hung out, drank coffee, took outfit pictures. Oh yeah, and looked at a million houses. Because we’re moving there! AH! A lot of you already knew that, but there it is. Dan is up there now because he got accepted into Lakehead to finish off his bachelor’s degree, and he started summer courses yesterday. So it’s just me here in Hamilton for now until I head back up in a couple weeks... Read The Rest →

Changing over of the seasons. Eagerly awaiting Spring. (Although, seriously, that was the easiest Winter ever. So I don’t want to hear you complaining, ok?) I’m excited every day to see what’s popping up in my garden though. Because I am that person now. Not sure how it happened, but I’m... Read The Rest →

at home with Elissa&Jay

Hey there! It’s been a couple weeks. I had a final project due in a class I’m taking, so I got a little distracted. But I’ve got a great home tour for you today, so I promise it was worth the wait! I got to visit Elissa a few weeks ago in the home she’s made with her husband Jay and their pup Wendel (his full name is Wendel Bark, how good, right? He’s even got his own insta account.) They moved to the Crown Point neighbourhood about a year... Read The Rest →
